Calling for visitor information centre volunteers

ONCE the newly built visitor information centres open their doors in Casino and Woodburn, volunteers will be needed. Anyone interested should have a passion for the Richmond Valley and Northern Rivers.

Volunteering is a great way to share local knowledge, which helps visitors and residents make the most of their time in the region. Volunteers provide assistance with face-to-face customer service, collection and entry of statistics, brochure management, information research, and retail sales.

Volunteers also participate in future tours of the region, networking with other volunteers and tourism operators – all with further training opportunities.

New volunteers are welcome to join the enthusiastic, fun and friendly team at Discover Richmond Valley. Being at the forefront of tourism activity in the region, you may be surprised to learn about the diverse attractions, activities and events which make the Richmond Valley unique.

All new volunteers will be formally registered with Richmond Valley Council, complete an induction and be given appropriate training. To register your interest, please visit

Council appreciates all volunteer applications, however, at times we may have to decline applications if the skills or availability do not match the required task.

If you are interested in learning more about volunteering, please contact Destination Officer Lena Mager on 6660 0382 or email Otherwise, visit the centre at 86 Centre Street, Casino.
